Sandra Franklin Bracknell, age 77, passed away on March 22, 2021. She was a loving wife, devoted mother and grandmother. She was born August 21, 1943 in Northport, AL to Alton and Flossie Walker Franklin. She grew up in Northport, Brighton and Bessemer, AL. She graduated from Bessemer High School in 1961 and a graduate of Burroughs Business School in 1962. She retired from Stockham Valves and Fittings with 35 years of service and then worked at Citation Southern Ductile Casting Company for many years. Sandra was preceded in death by her parents Alton and Flossie Franklin; son Bobby Joe Bracknell, Jr; and her sister Patricia Franklin Bruner. She is survived by her loving husband Bobby Joe Bracknell; her children Melinda Nix (Russell), Brent Jason Bracknell, and Elizabeth Wilding (Timothy); her grandchildren Anna Alexandra Nix and Peyton Grace Wilding; her sisters Faye Maness and Frieda Bowden; and many beloved nieces and nephews. Sandra loved to cook and share her culinary passion with family, friends and neighbors. There were not many conversations where she didn’t share a recipe or ask how you prepared a dish she enjoyed. She loved to travel with her husband, Bobby, in their motorhome throughout the United States. Sandra was a pet lover and doted on her beloved Daisy Belle and her grand pups. She was an avid gardener and had a green thumb with flowers and plants, as did her mother before her. Sandra was a member of the Allemande Square Dancing Club and enjoyed square dancing and clogging.
